I recently installed a game that is old, came out in 1996, the game is called Grand Prix manager 2. i have windows xp, and when i try to run the game a message appears that reads 'one of the library files needed to run C:\MPS\GPM2\GPM2.EXE cannot load in the 16-bit windows subsystem because it is a Win32 DLL' what does this mean and is there anything i can do to sort it out? help would be much appreciated!!!!

Not sure here, but might you have any joy if you try the game in compatibilty mode?

Search here for further pointers as it has been some time since I needed to do it myself.

Though it's something like right clicking on the drive and dropping down to comp. mode...

Hope that gets you going?

When I try to rip a CD by an artist I already have on file, it tells me that it is already ripped, but the truth is I have let's say one track on file by that artist and it thinks I have the full CD copied already so it spits it back out at me!

Any ideas please?
